Our Staff: Experienced Nurse Expert Witnesses & Legal Nurse Consultants

Our people are our greatest asset. The Vera Juris team consists of nurse expert witnesses , legal nurse consultants (LNCs) and medical litigation support personnel.  Medical-legal consulting requires a specific skill set that not all health care professionals possess.  All Vera Juris’ team members have been vetted for their critical analysis and reasoning skills, clinical experience and communication aptitude.  Additionally, our nurse experts have backgrounds in every medical specialty.  This allows us to bring focused expertise to every case.

A nurse expert witness is a licensed, registered nurse who is knowledgeable on the relevant standards of care for the nursing profession. The nurse expert performs a critical analysis of the medical records for a case and arrives at an opinion on whether or not the standard of care for nursing was breached. This expert may be called on to provide testimony regarding any deviation from the standard.

A legal nurse consultant is a licensed, registered nurse who performs a critical analysis of patient health care records and outcomes for medically related legal cases.  This role is a specialty practice within the nursing field that uses an RN’s expertise with the health care system to provide informed opinions on health care delivery to attorneys and other parties involved in medical litigation.
